Precious Jewel Recorded by Hank Locklin Written by Roy Acuff [3/4 time] C Way back in the hills F C As a boy I was once wandered Buried deep in her grave D7 G7 Lies the girl that I love
C She was called from this earth F C A jewel for Heaven More precious than diamonds G7 C More precious than gold A jewel here on earth F C And jewel in Heaven She'll brighten the kingdom D7 G7 Around God's great throne
C May the angels have peace F C God bless her in Heaven They've broken my heart G7 C And they've left me to roam When she was sixteen F C We courted each other She promised someday D7 G7 To become my sweet wife
C I bought her a ring F C To wear on her finger The angels they called her G7 C To heaven one night repeat #2 This world has it's wealth F C And it's trials and troubles Mother earth holds her treasures D7 G7 Of diamonds and gold
C But she can't hold the soul F C Of one precious jewel
She's resting in peace G7 C In that Heavenly home
